Just amazing

We went there for a couple of hours and remain for the whole day. It was just perfect! We dis the tour of the palace, kids enjoyed the maze, and then we went to the garden and up to the Gloriette with a wonderful view.
Definitely the best way of spending time

A worthy competitor of Versailles

If you're in Vienna it comes highly recommended to spend at least one full day at Schönbrunn and its gardens. The palace itself is nice to see. The price is a bit high, but the majestic rooms are quite interesting to see. It's certainly more impressive than the Imperial Appartments at Hofburg, especially the ball room. With the audio guide it took me almost one hour to complete the entire tour. As a visitor you have two options, but always opt for the longest one. You will see some special rooms like a hunting room which you won't see with the most basic ticket. And some of these rooms are the finest of the entire palace.

Beautiful Palace and Gardens
Sep 2021
We took a guided tour of the Schonbrunn Palace as part of a Uniworld tour. The palace is beautiful and we learned some of the history of the Hadsburg family and Empress Maria Theresa. The gardens are gorgeous and were definitely the highlight of our visit. The gardens go on forever! Be sure to take the time to walk through. We visited in September and there were no crowds which was very nice.

Always fun to visit a palace. Beautiful landscape too. The self guided tour was easy and efficient. Strolling along outside was lovely. Not too crowded so it was easy to enjoy.

The place is great, full of history and cultural, a nice garden and labyrinth, and a beautiful site of the palace and the city at the top of the hill. It’s a most on your list if your going to Viena!

For fans of 18 century and glamour.

If you are a fan of splendor, baroque and rococo styles - this is yours. We are not fans, so we did not go inside the palace.
We walked in the park - it is huge and crowded.
Despite the distance from the center (7 kilometers on foot) it is convenient to get - by subway. Between the metro station and the palace there is a machine with free water - very convenient. In general, stock up on water in the heat.
Pretty cute Japanese garden, although it's not old Austria of course.
My advice - visit everything in the center - Belvedere, Military Museum, Albertina, etc., and then, if time permits - visit it

This is a must if you go to Vienna! It was beautiful and the tour of the inside was absolutely amazing! It was so cool to see inside the palace and the different rooms. The hike to the other building was very nice too!
